Do More with OpenStack Swift

Looking for an easier way to access your data in OpenStack Swift? Maybe you're looking for a web browser-based file manager? There are many tools out there for this purpose, so what's the difference with Triofox? Seamless simplicity. Instantly integrate your traditional file servers into hybrid cloud file servers. Seamlessly access files from mapped drives, mobile devices and web browsers anywhere. And easily share files and folders as web links from Outlook or web browsers.

Challenges of OpenStack Swift

OpenStack Swift is primarily for independent software vendors (ISVs) to develop business solutions, not for direct use. It's kind of like a hard drive that's not meant for direct use, but as a building block behind a tool like Windows Explorer or a file-sharing platform like a Windows file server.

Triofox Solution

Triofox, with its OpenStack Swift API integration, adds secure remote access and file sharing, disaster prevention and recovery, to on-premises file servers with easy cloud migration to OpenStack private cloud.


Triofox bridges file servers and OpenStack Swift for secure remote access and file sharing.


Triofox uses OpenStack as a central cloud file repository with version control, file change history, and audit tracing to ensure business continuity for on-premises file servers.


Triofox sets up a hybrid deployment between on-premises file servers and OpenStack that can be seamlessly transformed into an OpenStack-only deployment. The end result is a cloud file server on top of OpenStack private cloud instead of on-premises.

Triofox Feature Highlights


Remote access to file shares from a drive letter without requiring a VPN. Mobile applications included!


Minimize storage and bandwidth consumption by automatically synchronizing and caching only the files you need.


Triofox adds version control and file protection to the local file server.


Local file server and OpenStack Swift storage are synchronized to ensure business continuity and easy cloud migration.


Retain NTFS permissions and Active Directory identities when connecting file servers to OpenStack private cloud.


Granular folder permissions that can mirror NTFS permissions or start from scratch.

Deployment Option #1:
Hybrid Local File Servers with OpenStack Swift

Local file server and OpenStack Swift synchronize with each other for business continuity and easy cloud migration.

Install CentreStack File Server Agent on the file server that will migrate to OpenStack Swift over time. Supports Windows 2016/2019/2022 (32-bit/64-bit).

Deployment Option #2:
File Servers with Direct Cloud Access

Access OpenStack Swift or file server network shares directly with Triofox fronting the storage services with HTTPS

If you have already migrated local file server data to the OpenStack data center, Triofox provides a solution for direct file access from remote devices and mobile devices.

Problems Solved

Triofox's file server integration and enablement solves these problems by installing agent software on your file server, or by mounting your file server network share directly into Triofox if direct access is available. The software intelligently manages local and cloud storage and offers a range of cloud enablement options.

Most importantly, Active Directory security and the NTFS permission model are maintained as if they had never been changed. Drive mapping is also retained, giving end users a familiar drive letter to access files from remote locations. File locking is also maintained when multiple users are working on the same file at the same time.

The end result is that the file server's network shares are synchronized with OpenStack and Triofox provides a complete access solution for Windows mapped drives and Mac Finder mounted volumes for iOS and Android.

Secure Access and File Sharing

Attach local file server folders to your Triofox server to enable remote access. The original network shares remain accessible over the local area network.

Server in the Cloud

You can also use these features by using an existing file server from the OpenStack Compute Virtual Machines in the private cloud.

Global Workspace

Create a global namespace directory structure that unifies disparate file servers into a single folder structure and enables cross-site collaboration with a distributed cloud file system backed by OpenStack Swift.

Migrate to OpenStack Swift

Alternatively, the contents of the file server can be migrated to OpenStack Swift over time to form a hybrid environment. This allows remote access as well as a background backup process for business continuity.
